The Nuclear Bomb Effects Computer V2

Detonation

The calculator shown below is based on data in the 1957 edition of “The Effects of Nuclear Weapons”.  The images are of the second version of the  calculator. Version one of the calculator was designed by EG & G. Versions two and three were designed by the Lovelace Foundation. See my post which shows all three versions.

The revised edition of “The Effects of Nuclear Weapons” could be purchased with V3  [1962] calculator. Version two just came with a pamphlet. This is reproduced below.
